We are in the midst of the 2017 Eagles preseason with only a few weeks left until that first regular season game versus Washington. Excitement and concern is in the air regarding various positions and talent on this team, both on the offensive and defensive side of the ball. We break down the preseason and roster this week with Ed Kracz (@kracze), Eagles beat reporter for the Bucks County Courier Times, Burlington County Times and Doylestown Intelligencer.
But first on the Brief News & Views segment:
1. Phillies prospects news and notes, and what the call-ups have meant to the team. (4:30)
2. MLS and favorite sports cities outside of Philly. (17:10)
3. The NHL and Olympic story. (22:20)
4. The Sixers released their schedule for the 2017-2018 season. (26:40)
5. The Eagles made a trade, the cap, and weakest position on the team. (31:05)
And then what we’re throwing down on the Table is an interviewed fueled by the Eagles preseason, the recently Jordan Matthews and Ronald Darby trade and much more. First, getting into the trade, the guys discuss what it means for both the CB and WR positions moving forward. How has the depth been affected at CB and WR? It’s one of many questions Ed breaks down for us. Also, should we be concerned about the starting offensive line after their terrible performance last week in Green Bay? Ed also gives his opinions and thoughts on the depth of the LB position and how the personnel could look should we see any key injuries within the LB corps. A large concern is the all important chemistry between QB Carson Wentz and his top WRs. Is that chemistry there or does it need to develop? All of this an more this week on the Table. (43:05)
